The first Oblivion Trailer is out and it’s looking AWESOME. I thought this was supposed to be out tomorrow. Anyway, it doesn’t have the MPAA notice and it’s subtitled in spanish, so it’s probably an international version that got leaked. I’ll make screen captures once the official trailer is out.
Directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy), the movie also stars Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Melissa Leo. The movie is set to be released in April 2013.
Here’s the trailer (EDITED WITH NEW LINK):

The movie opens on April 19th. Here’s the synopsis:
Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one manâ€™s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.
Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jackâ€™s mission is nearly complete.
Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.
MSN Movies has added some new clips! I’m so excited, I can’t wait for this movie!
From the New York Times best-selling series author Lee Child comes one of the most compelling heroes to step from novel to screen: ex-military investigator “Jack Reacher.” Written and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie, “Jack Reacher” stars Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall, Richard Jenkins and Werner Herzog.
Jack Reacher is a tough and smart ex-military investigator with only one goal in mind: Justice. More comfortable by himself than in the company of others, it is only when he sees someone in need that he can’t help but do what is right.
Reacher is extremely intelligent, lives by his own rules and believes in doing the right thing, but he doesn’t always follow the rules others put in place for him.
Rule No. 1: Hit them hard, hit them fast
Rule No. 2: Always keep moving, look forward, never backwards
Rule No. 3: Travel light, travel far, carry nothing, own nothing
Rule No. 4: The less I relax, the luckier I get
JACK REACHER is a smart brutal suspense flick… just what I’d hope Christopher McQuarrie would make!
Iâ€™ve seen JACK REACHER for about a month now. Just cleared the embargo stage so letâ€™s hop right into it. Why should you give two shits about this film? Well, it is based on a series of books by Lee Child that has huge fans. Reacher is essentially the most badass Military Detective that there ever was. He found problems. That life is in the rearview and now he wanders the earth like Kane from Kung Fu having adventures. Now, thereâ€™s no Eastern philosophy. Jack Reacher is a bit more like John Ramboâ€¦ except a whole lot more functional. Ramboâ€™s zero to sixty is almost instantaneous. Jack Reacher has that kind of acceleration of violence, but he has a rather intense personal code. Iâ€™m pretty sure he belongs behind barsâ€¦ but heâ€™s kinda like the whole damn A-TEAM boiled into one very lethal Tom Cruise.
Reacher is probably a bit more talkative than his character in the book, but McQuarrieâ€™s dialogue for Reacher is so choice. In fact if you watch Cruiseâ€™s Jack Reacherâ€¦ efficient & precise describe his actions, dialogue and line of thought. Shortest distances. He keeps things explosive, even if theyâ€™re barbs of the verbal side.
You should not be surprised. This film is the second feature film directed by Christopher McQuarrie. The first is an intensely violent crime film called THE WAY OF THE GUN. McQuarrie is all kinds of sharp. He writes and directs like a clockwork mechanism. You always can look and marvel at the film as it comes together. It is deliberately clever & I really respond to that in a film like this.
JACK REACHER is an old school man with internally created way of life. Heâ€™s a man like The Outlaw Josey Wales. And thatâ€™s a very good film to conjure when talking about this movie. Youâ€™re talking ex-Military badass, never able to return home. Living day by day the way he lives. Heâ€™s a violent man. He stays off the clock, between the shadows. He uses the Greyhound bus system to travel. No ID checks, no tracking. You get the ideaâ€¦ trouble finds himâ€¦ you also get the idea that people around him get hurt and he moves forward. Always forward. He doesnâ€™t do anything that he canâ€™t live with.
Now the bad guys in this are into political corruption, theyâ€™re part of the infection feeding on society, but thatâ€™s getting ahead of myself.
The film starts off with a sniper mass murder spree. Brutal and not glorified. It isnâ€™t a cool sceneâ€¦ itâ€™s an oddly familiar one. The kind of thing you wouldnâ€™t be surprised to have explode into tomorrowâ€™s media. They quickly capture the â€œguyâ€ â€“ heâ€™s disenfranchised, ex-militaryâ€¦ even had a history of this kind of thing. All the evidence points to him and there is an OVERWHELMING CASE against him. He says, GET JACK REACHER.
Like I said, this crime has the media circus swirling and even a transient badass like Reacher sees the news and he had sworn to this killer thatâ€¦ Well, thatâ€™d be telling too much. Rosamund Pike plays the lawyer defending the mass murderer against her DA Father. Things occur, Reacher begins helping the Defense after checking out the evidence. He smells a frame. Rosamund suffers a bit in the film from that Sondra Locke in JOSEY WALES syndrome. When you have Josey Wales in a movie, do you really crave anything else? She isnâ€™t badâ€¦ sheâ€™s just doesnâ€™t have THE part, ya know? Between Cruise andâ€¦ WERNER HERZOG!
Now â€“ I love films like this. Trail mysteries where each breadcrumb leads to the next â€“ and thenâ€¦ eventually people are being killed in Werner Herzogâ€™s fucking presence â€“ because WERNER HERZOG is one of the scariest men ever. God bless him. Heâ€™s our Eric Von Stroheim and I adore him. People remain mysteries when theyâ€™re tough and when you hear the story Herzog tells about his characterâ€™s originâ€¦. It is SO AWESOME â€“ itâ€™s a classic McQuarrie criminal bedtime tale â€“ and I canâ€™t get enough of these. It isnâ€™t as operatic at Keyser Soze, but you can bet Keyser likes The Zecâ€™s style.
If you love PARKER movies, this is a movie and a character of that kind of determination. JACK REACHER is made of that pulp â€“ and McQuarrie knows that pulp. Cruise smartly puts himself in McQuarrieâ€™s hands and the film that comes out of that has a wonderful swagger.
OH and Robert Duvall is a retired Marine with a Shooting Range that Reacher ends up atâ€¦ and Duvall is totally in the Chief Dan George â€“ CHARACTER & COLOR mode. Heâ€™s awesome. Just like Chief Dan George was awesome in Josey Wales.
Now I know, Iâ€™ve brought up THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES so I assume you have to want to know, whatâ€™s better? Well, OUTLAW JOSEY WALES. Duh. By miles, because thatâ€™s my favorite Eastwood western. Love it. And to have a film set in the current world that evokes that iconic man of mystery. The alley angel you hope is out there maybe putting a few wrongs right the wrong way.
This film is called JACK REACHER and after you see it, youâ€™ll know the name and what it stands for.
Also keep your eyes on David Oyelowo, heâ€™s the investigatind Detective on the case that starts the film. He does real good work in a role that lets him have some fun. He keeps doing really wonderful work in film. Canâ€™t wait to see what he has for us next.
Iâ€™m so happy that McQuarrie finally has that career fire burning that Iâ€™ve wanted for him ever since I saw WAY OF THE GUN. Can I mention that film enough? And if McQuarrie gets to make a MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE film like it looks like, itâ€™ll be one helluva caper flickâ€¦ hope thereâ€™s some genuine flim flam going on.
12 years between his first and second feature and McQuarrie is improving with age! Now it gets really interesting.
A new featurette for the Lee Child adaptation Jack Reacher has been released. The film is based on Childâ€™s novel One Shot, which is one of 16 novels that center on the Jack Reacher character. In this featurette, the author talks about bringing the wildly popular character to the big screen and defends the decision to cast Tom Cruise as the 6â€™5â€, 250 lbs. title character from the book series. Despite a grating intro thatâ€™s narrated by â€œMovie Trailer Guy,â€ the featurette provides a nice look at the film and gives fans the chance to hear Child talk about having his material adapted into a feature film. Director Christopher McQuarrie was just recently tapped to helm Mission: Impossible 5 based on his work with Cruise on Jack Reacher, so obviously Cruise and Paramount are happy with the film. Hereâ€™s hoping heâ€™s put together a fun thriller thatâ€™ll please the bookâ€™s legion of fans.
Hit the jump to watch the featurette. The film also stars Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall, Richard Jenkins, David Oyelowo, and Werner Herzog. Jack Reacher opens on December 21st.

Mission: Impossible star Tom Cruise was recently interviewed and revealed that Mission: Impossible 5 might be on it’s way to the big screen.
The actor explains his experience making films and his vision for the franchise.[gn_quote style=”1″]”I started Mission: Impossible hoping I could make many of them. It’s a character that I can grow with. At that time it was the most expensive film in the history of Paramount Pictures, and the first film I was producing. It’s been pretty exciting. I’ll make a bunch of those. I’ll make as many as people want to see… because they’re very challenging, and so much fun to make. We’re already working on different images. Talking conceptually. I love traveling around promoting different movies because I’m always looking at different places, and I always walk around to see the city. I look at architecture, subways… coming up with different sequences.”[/gn_quote]
Tom Cruise will next be seen in Christopher McQuarrie’s crime drama Jack Reacher, which hits theaters December 21st.
